Sugarloaf Mountain – A Monadnock
I love the word monadnock. In case you weren’t enamored with geology in college like I was, here’s the definition:
A monadnock or inselberg is an isolated rock hill, knob, ridge, or small mountain that rises abruptly from a gently sloping or virtually level surrounding plain. (Wikipedia)
Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland is a monadnock covered with a multitude of technical, rocky, steep and challenging trails. Enjoy!
Lots of rocks…lots of climbing (are you sure we aren’t in the Massanuttens?!)
Cool rock formations
Nice views from the top
